Psychosocial support is an integral part of the HIV response. It addresses the ongoing psychological and social problems of HIV infected individuals, their partners, families and caregivers.
WOFAK trains adherence counselors and peer educators to provide psychosocial support to clients in health facilities. These health care providers also trained to provide home based care services to bed ridden clients. We encourage the formation of PLHIV support groups in order to have them participate in their care both at health facilities and their communities. PLHIV who participate in support group activities are more likely to have less HIV-related internal stigma, disclose their positive HIV status, reduce sexual risk behaviors and adhere to ART.
